Sanders was selected to play in his first Pro Bowl.

Sanders replaces injured Atlanta wide receiver Julio Jones.

Sanders was active for Sunday's game against Oakland after being limited all week at practice.

Sanders has been dealing with a sore hip.

Sanders had his fourth 100-yard receiving effort in five games in Sunday's win over the Dolphins. He had nine catches for 125 yards.

Sanders ranks third in the NFL with 76 catches and fourth with 1,079 yards.

Sanders is active Sunday. He was knocked from last week's game at St. Louis by a vicious hit but cleared the league's concussion protocol over the weekend.

He left the game after taking a hard hit from Rams safety Rodney McLeod on the opening drive of the second half.

Sanders caught three TDs and all nine passes Payton Manning threw his way and gained 120 yards Thursday night.

After going without a TD in the first five games of the season, Sanders has four in two weeks.

Sanders had seven catches for 101 yards in Sunday's win over Arizona.

Sanders has now gone over 100 yards in three consecutive games. He ranks second in the league with 108.8 per game.

Sanders caught 11 passes for 149 yards in Sunday's loss to Seattle.

It seems Sanders and Peyton Manning have quickly developed a love affair with Manning already targeting him 33 times through the first three contests.

Sanders had eight catches for 108 yards in Sunday's win over Kansas City.

He's tied for the team lead with 18 targets in two games.

The Denver Broncos gave Peyton Manning another receiving option, agreeing to a three-year contract with former Pittsburgh wideout Emmanuel Sanders.

Sanders, a third-round draft pick in 2010, had 161 catches for 2,030 yards and 11 touchdowns in four seasons with the Steelers. He started 10 games for Pittsburgh last season.
